Skip to comments.Paris banged up ... again (Prisoner Riot Feared over Hilton Special Treatment)

PETRIFIED PARIS HILTON mouthed I love you to her parents last night before being carted off to face a hostile reception in prison.....[snip]
[snip]Prisoner number 9818783 was put back in her special cell isolated from other inmates amid fears the angry lags could RIOT over her special treatment.
Wardens even ordered a lockdown as prisoners who think Paris pretended to be sick to con doctors threatened a revolt.
An insider at the prison in Lynwood, California, said: The women inside the jail are seething. They say if youre a rich white girl you get special treatment.
They are furious that while Paris had her own special cell with a panic button, was given better food and was kept away from the general population, she was still released early.
There are girls in here with cancer, TB, and with MRSA. They arent allowed to go home and are treated by prison medical staff.
The prisoners think if youre rich and pretend youre sick you can get away with murder.
Many of the girls have been locked down in their cells all day because they are so furious. The jail is full of screams about Paris.
Prison bosses fear this could simmer over into violence.
Ex-inmate Lisa Caprie said she suffered a nervous breakdown inside but was kept there.
She said: We heard Paris was treated like the Queen of England. Its not fair. My husband fought to get me out when I had a breakdown but they didnt listen.
And Elana Lamb, set free with an ankle tag, said Paris made a nuisance of herself by repeatedly pressing a medical alert button.
Lamb, 38, said: She was just whining, complaining she was cold and hungry.............."

I smell BS. Paris doesn’t have a “panic button”. Do you really think those inmates would risk losing their good behavior points over this circus?
Not sure that's standard treatment for any prisoner ~ maybe you spent some time there and can tell us how it is.
Um, cough, that headline might be a bit misleading.
Just as a disabled or mentally handicapped prisoner is going to require special handling, someone famous is NOT “just like everyone else” A sane Judge would of fined her $1 mil or sentenced her to 200,000 hours of community service rather then inflict this circus on the jail.
my 1st and only comment about Paris (whom I have met personally ) this jail time may just save her life.
where are the pics!
You better put a bandaid on that bleeding heart of yours, no sympathy here,,,
And even inside her cell she can probably hear the other prisoners shouting her name.
Paris is going to come out of this experience a changed person -- and probably not for the better.
MRSA must be twice as bad as TB. Twice the letters.
The Sun is hoping to provoke a riot. Their ace reporter was sent thousands of miles to make a story out of this, and it’s hard going.
It makes you wince to think that the Sun is the GOOD British tabloid and the Mirror is the bad one.
The women inside the jail are seething. They say if youre a rich white girl you get shecial treatment.
One presumes no other WHITE (THE EVIL COLOUR) girls are in there.
Also: hilton "panic button"
There are numerous storys about this.
I have a special *SALE* on Paris Hilton Get out of Jail Free cards. The are much better than carbon credits. If interested please FReepmail me your credit card and pin number. No checks.
She has/had a private cell. That is not the same as what is usually meant by "solitary confinement"
I have been thinking the same thing, I hope she can turn her life around before it is too late. My friend knows the family and I hear nothing but good things about them. We do not know what goes on behind closed doors, maybe her family has tried everything to stop this behavior and this is what she needs. Paris is an adult doing some really stupid things. I hope this is the wake up call.
What's your theory about the seething unrest?
Other than no one wants to be there, of course.
Or perhaps the whole story is a fabrication?
Makes it even funnier when one considers the context of that photo.
That photo is an actual reflection of Parisians’ feelings after they surrendered (yet again) to foreign forces (Nazis, in this case) after a brief war.
I have the life experience to prove it. When I was growing up, it was in a poor working class area surrounded by low-income housing projects. We were treated like white trash. The public schools I went to in the 1970s were exactly like that HS portrayed in that 70s sitcom "Welcome Back Kotter." My school was a decaying brick building covered with graffiti and iron bars on the windows. We had gym in the auditorium because a) there was no gymnasium and b) the playground and basketball courts outside were covered with broken glass and discarded needles. School lunches were usually the kind of bologna sandwiches on Wonder Bread or crusty fish sticks that they serve up in prison cafeterias. Teachers used to mimeograph (the term dates me, I know) lessons because there weren't enough textbooks to go around.
Growing up in that neighborhood, none of us had any hope. Most of my classmates ended up making nothing of themselves or choosing a life of crime (most of which ended up in jail).
Now my parents never went on welfare and they paid taxes just like everybody out in the suburbs but we were considered white trash by society because we happened to live in an urban wasteland in a working class/housing project-infested neighborhood. (We never lived in the projects but they surrounded us nevertheless.)
When you got in trouble with the law, you didn't get the Paris Hilton treatment. You were just moved through the maws of the judicial system like the cattle that society deemed you were.
So I managed to get myself out of that environment by joining the Marine Corps and I never looked back. Now I have a high-paying job and have been able to bring my family up in the upper-middle-class suburbs and what a difference. The school system my kids go to is superb with all the conveniences. The high school just built a $7-million dollar auditorium that is fit for an opera. Every student has their own computer. Of course, the kids that go to these schools are pampered and a little spoiled. But my taxes are no higher than what people pay in the inner city. I know the answer why. My community does not have housing projects and people on welfare. So our tax dollars are able to go more towards schools and infrastructure instead of to lazy bums who sit around watching Oprah all day and buying malt liquor and cigarettes with their welfare checks.
I just feel bad for the kids who are raised in the inner city and feel that they have no hope. I also get very upset with people like Paris Hilton who think they are special and privileged just because they happened to be born on the right side of the tracks.
I never have been so humiliated. To be seen driving in a Ford!

Paris may still get out of jail early, as her sentence is likely to be reduced for good behaviour and her lawyers are planning to appeal next week.
Is acting like a spoiled rotten crybaby - and expecting to be treated better than the other inmates - considered "good behaviour"? From your comment above, to me, it sounds like the judge is quite sane. He probably observed her petulant behaviour in the courtroom, examined her past record of disregarding the law & ignoring judgments passed to her during other convictions. She clearly thumbed her nose at the courts & was spiraling quickly downward to self-destruction & possibly taking some innocent by-stander with her.
It would be one thing if Paris had demonstrated that she "gets it" & showed some remorse and sensitivity to the seriousness of the charges against her. If she had shown a modicum of respect for the system. The girl clearly has some drug & alchohol addiction problems that her high-falootin' spa/resort/rehab facilities have not been able to correct.
The judge, in my opinion, showed rare insight into this girl's serious problems & determined that a dose of reality and paying for your actions (for the first time in her life) might be the only thing that finally cracks her hard & pampered head! This judge is trying to do Paris and the rest of us a favor - this, if Paris & her family would just realize - is the best thing that's ever happened to her. It might just save her life.
The judge is trying to do the right thing here. It was the County Sheriff who was wrong by giving in to her 'health' issues and ordering her to be on 'mansion' arrest.
Both orders were specifically against the judges directives.
Have you noticed that whenever he wants his budget increased, he releases prisoners?
Every ell has a panic / call button. They are not on thier person and its not special treatment its just the way the cells are set up.
I heard that she had said something to that effect, but I thought it was just the two guys on the radio making a joke.
‘The people paying the price for this media grandstanding from the Judge here are the guys that got to try an run that jail. Just so a bunch of pathetic losers can sit around read junk media reports and feel all good and macho for “getting even with that rich bi’ch”’
Have you been paying attention?
THe prison idiots are the ones who have brought this trouble on themselves by treating her differently.
She lost her license for a DUI then got caught driving on it multiple times.
If a black kid robbed a liquor store, he’d go to jail.
If a high ranking Dem steals original documents from the national archives, he gets a slap on the wrist.
If you or I were caught driving on a suspended license, we’d be in jail, not let out for whining about it, but serve the whole sentence.
Paris is being treated different from the rest of the population. By the warden.
“Your knee jerk rabid stupidity impresses no one here.”
“No the rabid loser Bush haters who spent all their time doing nothing but screaming bile at the GOP, (i.e.YOU) because they were not getting only what they wanted the second they decided they wanted it did that. Bush is just the scapegoat for the complete lack of mental or emotional discipline amount the Conservative punditry and Talkers and their mindless drone followers.”
You have some serious anger issues, dude.
OH! I rem: the Picture (remember History books, 'Rats. :) surrendering to the German Democrats.
Tough love is what Paris needs, something liberals don’t comprehend (among other things)
it’s worse than that. Kathy,her mom,tried acting and modeling and was a lump of coal. Paris is doing all Kathy wanted and wanted to be. Sorta a Jon Bennet Ramsey thing.
Sadly a 26 yr old in a crisis was hollerin’ MOM....
She should have been turned over to that great Sheriff in Arizona, that really tough guy that has chain gangs, no coffee, live in tents in the heat, makes you work, and no TV guy. That would be the last time you ever saw Paris in court.
In all fairness, I don't believe too many people were all that concerned until the sheriff took matters into his own hands and disobeyed a judicial order. It makes you wonder what persuaded him to do so.
This isn't about getting even. This is about a sick woman who manages to spread her social dysfunction through a willing media to the youth of this country. This is about a spoiled rotten, whoring woman who appears to be able to buy off the justice system. And this is about a media that can't get enough of telling her story.
People have a right to be upset about this.
I suspect if their is a riot the Judge who decided to whore for media headlines by sending a prison of her PR status to a jail is to blame. She is NOT just like everyone else no matter how much that offend the pseudo egalitarianism of the average American.
You right. The L.A. sheriff should have pitched a tent out near Rosamund (Ave A) or Lake Los Angeles and barred all the dumb media reporters who have nothing better to do then waste time following some spoiled brat.
I remember when Tom Brokaw was doing NBC news and Madonna said she was retiring.Brokaw thought out loud “who will push the envelop now”........there is your culprits
Who gives a Rats Petootie what happens to this vapid, spoiled brat....get her off the news and front pages, she is a disgrace not to be emulated by young girls whose stupid mothers think like this think its cute dress their little girls like Hilton .get a life and get Hilton out of the headlines!
This is about what Rush Limbaugh calls “Get even withemism”
“Oh see is rich, she is famous, she got stuff I don’t got. YEAH! She is being punished and made to suffer YEAH!!!”
Really pathetic. Hilton is punished and their pathetic lives are still pathetic but I guess they can feel good for a couple of seconds because Paris Hilton got taken down a peg or two.
“Love your suit.”
The women inside the jail are seething. They say if youre a rich white girl you get special treatment.’
Paris, The other white meat.
I have no sympathy for her either - she has set herself up as being a rich, immature, irresponsible, disrespectful B****. She shouldn’t get any better or worse treatment than anyone else, if the sheriff can’t control the inmates, that’s a bad mark on him - not the judge. If Martha Stewart can do it, I’m sure Paris can.
You are quite the jackass.
